The always-awesome ursulav comments on the term "blogosphere":

This always reminds me of bathospheres. I imagine people in little iron balls, sinking into the dark waters of Livejournal, peering out at the drifting inhabitants. "Ooo! An angstfish! Note the pity lure dangling from the front of the head, with which it lures in unwitting sympathizers!" Darting shoals of quiz results flicker past, a lone phosphorescent photosquid slowly jets by, before it's startled into voiding its link sac and vanishing in a cloud of little broken picture icons. Off in the distance, great shadowy sharks cruise, discussing politics and religion and making elaborate qualifiers that they don't mean YOU, you're one of the NICE ONES, while tiny remoras slip along their skins, picking off bits of drama. Jacques Cousteau narrates as we visit this deep and complex ecosystem.
